Podcast: #DigitalOptimists with Stefan Buijsman (Privacy Issues Episode)

I am having a conversation with my friend Stefan Buijsman who is the youngest Ph.D. of the Netherlands and Sweden (obtained it at the age of 20).
He has written numerous books about mathematics and Artificial Intelligence and he is an optimist when it comes to technological developments and social media.

We discuss encryption, tailored advertisements, Cambridge Analytica, and staying optimistic about technology in the turbulent times of social media.

We discuss whether WhatsApp is as private and encrypted as it claims to be, the controversies of Cambridge Analytica and whether it could influence the 2016 elections in the United States, the current issues of Facebook, digital ‘spying’, revenue and profit, pros and cons and whether deleting your social media will help.
